OS X :: Can't Change Vnc Address In Screen Sharing Preference

Dec 9, 2009

I'm trying to redo the ridiculous naming system for our Macs in our office. I've changed the Computer name to "MP-01" and the local hostname to "MP-01.local" correctly. However when selecting the screen sharing option, i get the following:

Screen Sharing: On

Other users can access your computer at [URL] or browse for �MP-01�.

The domain is our personal domain and that looks fine. But the employee name that precedes it, I can't find where to change that. The weird thing is it wasn't the name of the Computer before I changed it, nor is it an employee that has ever used this machine.

OS X Mavericks :: How To Get IP Address On Screen Sharing Preference

Jun 27, 2014

I am on Mavericks. When I go to Sys Preferences, Sharing, Screen Sharing - It says Other user can access your computer's screen at vnc://computername.home. it does not show the IP address. Isn't the IP address required when I go to the computer/ipad with a vnc client on it?? How do I get it to show the IP address here? 

The source computer (the one I want to see) is on wifi (via fios or airport router).

OS X :: Apple Remote Desktop - ARD Box In Sharing Preference Of Machines

Feb 4, 2010

I've just started to use ARD and have it installed on my Admin computer running 10.6.2. I'm aiming to control macs on different OS'. I seem to be able to work ok with machines running tiger but leopard and panther aren't working correctly.

I'm not sure if its because I need to create a new account on the machines to use in conjunction with ARD, I've seen this done before in apple tutorial videos. Does anyone know if this is the best way to implement the system or can I check the ARD box in the sharing preference of my machines?

MacBook Pro :: Cannot Change Wallpaper - System Preference Crashes

Jun 22, 2008

I'm using a MacBook Pro (Penryn) running Leopard. Every time I try and change my wallpaper in system preferences, it crashes and asks me if I'd like to report it to Apple. It eventually gave me the "would you like to reset settings and relaunch" dialogue. Still continuously crashes. I just want to change my damn wallpaper and this is annoying me to no end.

OS X Mavericks :: Using Automator To Change System Preference When Opening App

Jun 21, 2014

I have been using a Mac for a good 8 years now and I'm a happy user. I recently found out about Automator ('hey what is this little robot for?') and what it can do, yet I lack the knowledge of finding out what I must do to make a script to perform the following thing:  When I launch an app (FL Studio), I want the box checked next to 'Use F1 and F2 as standard function keys' in the Keyboard preferences pane in the System Preferences app. When I close the same app (FL Studio), I want the box unchecked next to 'Use F1 and F2 as standard function keys' in the Keyboard preference pane in the System Preferences app.  

I have found several other topics about this subject, however, those were about scripts when logging in to your computer, and not upon opening/closing an app. Please note that I am seeking for the setting to be changed when the app is opened and closed.

I would like to be able to view this list on other computers (using OS 10.4.11) when I am out of the office. I understand that this is possible if I have a .mac account.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Grey Line Screen On Screen Sharing Virtual Display?

Mar 10, 2012

Whenever I try to use Screen Sharing to control this one particular Mac Mini, and someone else is using the mini, and I pick "Connect to Virtual Display", I get dropped to a grey linen screen.  Like the login screen, but without a list of usernames or anything.  There it sits. Here is what I see in the console of the mac mini when I try and use a virtual display from the other machine: 

3/10/12 7:30:04.291 AM mds: (Error) Backup: Couldn't stat source path '/Users/glados/Library/Saved Application State/com.apple.finder.savedState/window_3.data' -- importing from backup path instead

OS X :: Unable To Change Sharing Permission In Finder For Folders

Apr 7, 2009

New folders created on a network are unable to be accessed by other users on the same network in Leopard OSX 10.5.6. The original user is the only one able to access the folder. You should be able to go to 'Get Info' on the folder and change sharing and permissions at the original user's mac, so that all users on the network are able to read and write to that folder. Leopard OSX doesn't not allow the change to be made. The selections are not ghosted out, but the appear available to be selected. No matter which you choose 'read & write', 'read only' the 'no access' option remains. We can go to a different mac on the network that has Tiger OSX and change the sharing and permissions of the folder in question. Why can't I easily do the same on the originating mac?

Applications :: Won't Work With Full Screen And Screen Sharing

Aug 19, 2010

Does anyone know of a way to enter full screen in Mac OS X's native screen sharing application? I recently purchased a new MBP and wanted to screen share to my old MB with all my "junk" on it. It would be handy to actually enter full screen as opposed to being restricted to a window sized screen.

If this isn't possible, anyone have a good recommendation for an alternative application?

Software :: Change Ethernet MAC Address?

Aug 25, 2008

I've read my license agreement and it would seem that I am allowed to use, sell, crush, alter, pour acid on, smack with a hammer, or eat my Macintosh, since I own it.

Based on the fact that I own my Mac, I have three questions for you:

How do I change my Ethernet MAC address?

How to I change my lmhostid ?

Is lmhostid simply always just a copy of the Ethernet MAC address, with the colons removed?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Change 'From' Email Address?

Mar 25, 2012

change my 'From' email address in Mail.app in Lion. I have my own SMTP credentails to use my own domain email address in gmail. I would love to use this same 'from' address in Mail.app, but I cannot work out how this works. Is this possible? I want to stop having my Gmail address being shown when I use Mail.app.  

Ideally, this would also work in the Mail app in iOS.  

I know that I cannot use my own domain email in iCloud, so for now I must continue to use Gmail.
